    Agreed

    Although I know we are missing numerous #1's, I still feel that savage or even keenum for that fact couldn't do worse than fitz at this point.

    On the bright side watt and J-Clown are good.

    Only if he can play in the secondary...

    My gosh, our defense is so out of position all across the field.

    What was our defensive ranking last year under Wade?

    Interesting to see what happens if our defense takes a step
    backwards, even after drafting a generational player like Clowney

    I'm really disappointed that we didn't get any film on Savage, I would have liked to see him with the 2nd team.

    savage is way too green to be anyone's savior. He needs
    a full offseason (like Case got) to actually understand what is
    going on.

    At this point he didn't get a chance to show anything and was
    responsible for 2 points for the other team -- typical rookie
    error

    I thought maybe he got hit in the jimmies but Savage was put through concussion protocol/test and passed.

    Thanks for that info on Savage PO, he really got popped when he took that safety, and I noticed as the camera followed him on the SL after the play that he was acting pretty goofey. I'm relieved he's OK.
    Yea I wish we could have seen more of him, but in just the couple short passes he threw you could see the spin and velocity on the balls that was different than what the other 2 QBs were throwing.

    Not to be an apologist, but that blitz got in there fast. He couldn't just throw it away, that would've been a safety as well. His only option was to throw it to a receiver and that could've easily ended up as a pick 6 (and he had practically no time to scan the field). The only thing you could really fault him for was not adjusting the protection, but that would be a lot to ask of a rookie. So overall I think all of our QBs and probably around 80% of all QBs in the league would've taken that safety.

    But I agree with you an him needing a season. He needs to learn the system, getting faster through his reads and adjust to the speed of the game. He has all the tools but much to learn. I could see us throwing him in the fire sometime this season just to find out, if there is enough promise not to take a QB with our first pick next draft.

    Nice little drive & TD & 2 point conversion for the win by Tom.

    Not pefect, but he really needed that little confidence boost.

    A noticeable bit more zip on the ball.

    Case Keenum is not going to make this team...

    I rooted for the guy, but he's still making the same mistakes and still can't pick up a blitz to save his life.
